Teaching Grammar Guide: Tense vs Aspect

Most English teachers feel comfortable teaching a conversation lesson or a lesson that integrates other skills such as listening, reading, or writing.

They show creativity in those lessons and include a variety of ideas to help their students improve their language skills; however,  using creative and varied techniques might be more difficult when teaching a grammar topic.

Grammar topics are often taught as if they were not part of the language the students have been practicing in an integrated skills lesson.

In grammar lessons rules are explained or memorized, written exercises are the focus of the lesson, and the students end up feeling they grasped the rule but they cannot use it when trying to communicate.
